Amherst Theatre (the ACHS theatre troupe) had competition Saturday, October 26 at Jefferson Forest High School for VHSL and another performance at ACHS on October 29. Our theatre students placed second and will be moving on to REGIONALS! Amherst Theatre performed in Norfolk, Virginia for a statewide competition at the annual VTA (Virginia Theatre Association) and out of approximately 45 schools they received 3rd place (they called it 2nd runner up - but its 3rd place). The students had a great time and represented AMHERST well! It's an incredible honor and it put us on the map! Thank you for all your support along the way. These talented and well-behaved students exhibited great sportsmanship...these students cheered for everyone and appreciated all the shows they watched! The show they performed was David Campton’s “Us and Them”. It’s a complex production that tackles the antagonist nature that humankind struggles with daily! Congratulations to Mrs. Emmert and her students for such an awesome job!
